During the duration of the music video Beyoncé makes numerous references to historical events. She uses these references as a way to illustrate the story and educate the morals behind them. For example, Beyoncé purposely uses the sinking New Orleans police car to demonstrate the story behind the event. The narrator, Beyoncé, visually communicates the story of how Hurricane Katrina traumatically demolished the city of New Orleans. By laying on the sinking police car she is simply visually stating that police officers, during this dramatic event, were drowning the people of New Orleans, rather than aiding them in a desperate time of need. There does seem to be a casual relation between the people of New Orleans and the

Alessia Cara’s music video “ wild things” is an embodiment of my definition for the word hip. Throughout the decades people were considered hip when they were seen defying social norms. The hip groups of the 70’s counterculture were seen defying different types of norms from their dress and music they listened to, to the weed and LSD that they did. Alessia and her friends embodied this style of life. They lived a carefree night, and defied social norms set by parents and adults. As stated in the lyrics they did not care what people thought of them they were going to break loose and have fun. Alessia Cara and her friends defied social norms and had fun creating a movement for others to follow, therefore they're hip. Alessia Cara’s music video

The visual of the song begins with a destroyed flower representing unattractiveness. It goes on with young people and adults half naked signifying the insecurity they have about themselves and their bodies. There are different actors representing different situations people go through. An anorexic girl looking at herself in the mirror is shown. She stares at herself for a while and as the song goes on she ends up breaking the mirror. The mirror represents the view other people see when looking at her, the reason why she broke the mirror was to finally feel like she accepted herself as she is. A gay couple is shown together and everyone that passes by stares at them. They realize they are silently being judged but do not pay attention.
